Wrongful death suit filed against wife of American diplomat in death of Harry Dunn allowed to proceed in Virginia

A wrongful-death lawsuit filed by the family of Harry Dunn, a 19-year-old British man fatally struck in a hit-and-run involving the wife of an American diplomat, will be allowed to proceed in Virginia, a judge has ruled.

Dunn was riding his motorcycle outside a military facility in Central England in August 2019 when he collided with Anne Sacoolas, who has confessed to driving on the wrong side of the road at the time. Her husband, a U.S. diplomat, was stationed on the base, RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire, near the crash site.

Dunn later died at an Oxford hospital.

STURGIS, S.D. — Albert Aguirre was amped as he and a buddy skimmed across the South Dakota plains, heading to join 460,000 bikers for a motorcycle rally shaping up to be a Woodstock of unmasked, uninhibited coronavirus defiance.

“Sit tight Sturgis,” Aguirre, 40, posted on Facebook on Aug. 7 as he snapped a photo of the sun sifting through the clouds. “We’re almost there!”

A month later, back home in the college town of Vermillion, South Dakota, Aguirre was so sick he could barely take a shower. He had not been tested but told friends that it had to be COVID-19.
